Congratulations to Dave Rezendes July PFRE Photographer of The Month

In: 
Published: 01/08/2011

It's now August 1 in GMT so the voting for the July PFRE Photographer of the month is over.

Congratulations to Dave Rezendes of Dave Rezendes Photography, Inc. of Honolulu, Hawai'i who was voted PFRE photographer of the month for July. Dave's stunning image is of a home in Honolulu designed by Long and Associates AIA, Inc. Click on the image to the right for a larger version.

Dave says:

Living here in Hawai'i there is a great opportunity to see and shoot some of the most beautiful homes in the most beautiful locales in the country.  This home, designed by Long and Associates AIA, Inc, is no exception by any means.  The biggest challenge with this shot was preserving the view and keeping it as natural as possible as it becomes part of the living space.  The view was masked in and had to be appropriately managed to be realistic with the amount of "pull"  there was on the floor.  Studio flashes were set up directly to the left of the camera and one to the far right near the corner.  Getting good white balance and flash intensities was critical to give the proper effect to the white leather couch, which was a bit of a challenge.

The second place winner was by Fredric J. Ueckert of Seattle. Click on the image to the right to view a larger image. Fred says:

I had the opportunity to photograph this amazing penthouse condo in downtown Seattle. There was a great view of Puget Sound as you look to one side and as you look the right, the Space Needle is right outside the window, so close you could almost touch it. I chose this image because I also loved the spiral staircase that led up to the loft and the large sliding doors that opened up to the patio and the view. Exposure Fusion definitely came in handy to bring the outside view in on such a nice sunny day, which is not seen to often in the Northwest.

Note that we are accepting entries for August’s photographer of the month. The theme for August is Large interior adjoined multiple space. See the PFRE Photographer of The Month page for details of how to submit photos.
